Shenzhen, China – Cornucopia Film Co. Ltd has invested in a Mistika 4K finishing and colour grading system to deliver high-end post production services to its clients. It is the first post house to host a Mistika system in Shenzhen, and is one of China’s new creative companies offering editing, CG/VFX production, colour grading and DI services for feature film projects.

One of China’s colourists, Szu-Yi Chu, who is also the Managing Director and Chief Colourist at Cornucopia Films, has enthusiastically adopted Mistika and believes in its remarkable capabilities. He stated, “SGO’s Mistika was a natural choice when looking ahead to a 4K future at Cornucopia Films, and I have to say, I am a real fan of this technology. After thoroughly researching the market, Mistika is the most comprehensive and open system in the industry, and is ideal for us to build an efficient workflow around. We will primarily put our Mistika to work on high-end colour grading and compositing for film and broadcast productions.”

Expanding further he added, “I joined Cornucopia Films at the beginning of this year, and invited a team from Taiwan over, to build a movie DI platform purely from scratch. Although we had to be cautious with every step, as selecting the right kit is a vital decision. Colour grading equipment is the most important priority to me, and to everyone’s surprise, I chose a system that nobody in our team was yet familiar with – the Mistika.” Chu continued, “As we were starting from the beginning anyway, my position was that we may as well take advantage of the opportunity and choose the very best that the market has to offer, which is Mistika. I feel that investing in SGO’s intuitive Mistika technology gives us an edge and an opportunity to offer a unique service to our clients. It was worthwhile taking the time to master it and I believed that it deserved our time. I told my team that we need to be visionaries, and not conservative about trying something else which is not only new, but also much better at everything.”
